Color. . . At Last!


Although the weather has warmed up considerably of late, the trees and shrubs are still pretty brown. I have noticed for the past several years that more and more people are planting these early spring blooming trees.  My spirits are uplifted by these spots of color as I bike around the neighborhood early in the morning. I think they are magnolias. . .right?

  1. I know these are sights for sore eyes! It's raining here again today. I'm beginning to hate the rain as much as you were hating the winter!

  3. We have a white magnolia in our front yard which is filled with blossoms just now emerging. These are very pretty and I can imagine how that color is a blessing after a long cold winter.
